The water in Boulder Colorado tends to be in the hard water range. Hard water contains a larger amount of the mineral calcium. The calcium tends to settle out of the water and collect on the inside of wastewater pipelines. Once it collects on the pipeline wall it is often called scale, limescale, or corrosion. The scale is rough and tends to allow snags and blockages to build up within the pipe. Once blockages begin to accumulate, the water flow is decreased and, over time, the water can begin to back up into sinks or tubs, or the building owners will begin to notice an odor whose source can’t be located.
What Are The Benefits Of Drain Cleaning Services?
Once the scale conditions are bad enough to noticed, a cleaning is going to be required, and soon. The conditions will only worsen with time. To begin the cleaning, a sewer camera inspection is performed. The camera is small and waterproof and can be fed through the curves and corners of the indoor pipelines. The camera relays video information and allows the technician to determine how serious the overall scale conditions in the pipelines are, as well as where the blockage is located.
Once the circumstances of the pipelines are determined, a hydro jetting is performed to clean the interior pipeline walls. Hydro jetting is a trenchless pipeline repair. It is called trenchless because no digging is required to perform the repair. Flooring does not need to be torn up, walls do not need to be broken open. No renovations are necessary after the pipeline cleaning has been performed.
Hydro jetting involves a pressurized water compressor, a flexible hose and a rotating, water-jetting nozzle. The nozzle is fed through the pipeline while forcefully emitting high-powered water streams that scour clean and smooth the walls of the pipe. The streams of water are also strong enough to break apart and flush away any blockage that has begun to form. The process of hydro jetting only requires hours for completion, not weeks. The process is respectful to the interior of the building, cost effective, and quick.
Once the pipeline has been cleaned and the blockages removed, it is highly recommended to place the building on a wastewater pipeline maintenance schedule. This allows you to schedule an inspection appointment before anyone notices the symptoms of a future blockage. Should a cleaning be required at that time, it can be performed at your convenience. Homeowners have their own routine and businesses and apartment complexes rely on customer comforts. It is best for building owners to have the option to choose a time that is most complementary to the traffic flow of a building for performing future pipeline cleanings.
